as a reelected supervisor. i want the people of district 9 and the city and county of san francisco i know that this is the greatest honor that i have ever received and it is something that i cherish, and that i wake up every single day thinking how can i be the best representative for each and every member of my district? you know, in the last couple of campaigns, different slogans have been presented. i think it was our city attorney who was here earlier, who talked about that we want to have the city that works. i believe that. i believe all of us believe that. i would simply add, and this is my mantra is a take over again at the district 9 supervisor: i want to city that works, but i want to city that works for everyone. i want a city that works for those whose voices are not heard in this chamber. i want a city that works for every member in the district. we have to work collectively to make sure that happens. i want to continue to focus on issues that ensure that a city like san francisco work for people. public safety is a big priority. i want to thank the police depart
within this city which makes san francisco a city that the whole world looks at and follows and listens to and so even though i'm a critic of cca, simply for scientific reasons, i appreciate the fact that the supervisors did the thinking they did and came to the conclusion they came to because even though the environmental crisis is going to bring huge storms this year beyond the political storms. in fact the environmental storms are probably going to be more powerful than the political storms we will face this year. this city with this free thinking attitude is capable of providing leadership to the whole world, but there needs to be all sides involved and this city does that and i thank you supervisor olague for your leadership. >> thank you. next speaker please. >> i would like to thank supervisor olague for her leadership as well and call on the hearing on education and as well as housing. those are two issues that affect african-american community across the country as well as san francisco. i'm -- you know what i do for a living. i'm a homeless advocate. i advocate for homele
year on violent crime and homicides in san francisco. and, so, we've been working together on creating a program which i announced some months ago, the ipo program, the ability to work on things that would interrupt and intervene earlier in the behavior patterns of people that would be both victims and perpetrators of violent crime in our city. to support the police department and law enforcement system of doing more predictive policing using both data and technology to help us do that. and then, of course, i think the most important part is to organize our communities and work with community-based organizations, families, religious groups, and everybody that's on the ground to find more ways to intervene in violent behavior out there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community jobs programs, others that might allow people to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticut in sandy hook elementary school of course heightened everybody's awareness of what violence can really be all about. and as we have been not only resp
